Happy Aloha Friday everyone! Hope you all had a great week and are ready to start the weekend! I know I sure am! Well, it's finally here - My Cricut Craft Room's June 100+ Cricut Cartridge Blog Hop! Whew - that was a mouthful! This is the second blog hop I've been in, and it's so much fun! WARNING - this is gonna be a longer post than usual, so I hope you'll stick around. Enjoy the music while you're reading. Heehee!
Before I get to my projects, I'd like to give a HUGE shout out to the gals I've met on FB in Erica's "My Cricut Craft Room". You all have totally inspired me to use my Cricut more and more and I look forward to doing exactly that! Anyhoo, back to the "Hop"! If you're on track, you should've just come from Lezlye Hardwick Lauterbach's blog. If not, please start at the beginning here, at Erica's blog. On to my projects. If you follow me, you know I'm more of a card and tag maker, and occasionally do 3-D projects. However, for this Hop, I decided to do an 8x8 scrapbook page and a keepsake page for my parents. I put this 8x10 page in an acrylic frame which I'm giving to them tomorrow, as a gift for their 60th wedding anniversary. Actually, their anniversary isn't until August, but I'm one of those people who just can't wait to give people their presents! Here's what I used on my page: Cricut Cartridge Pagoda, paper from DCWV (Cardstock for Cardmaking - Heritage Pack, and Far East Stack), scraps from my stash, and the Martha Stewart Cherry Blossom Punch Around the Page.
The words, symbols, and flowers were all cut from the Pagoda cartridge.
This next page is of our cat Maui. My son volunteers at an animal hospital/shelter and Maui adopted him last year. You read that right - the cat adopted my son! For this page, I used: Cricut Lite Cartridge Meow, paper from DCWV (Cardstock for Cardmaking - Heritage Pack), Stampin' Up! Designer Series Paper Petal Patch (maybe retired?), bling from stash, and a mini flower punch.
As soon as I saw this image on the cartridge, I knew I had to use it ... it reminds me so much of Maui!
This tag and the little kitty were also cut from the Meow cartridge. So cute!
Be sure to leave a comment on this post as Erica will be giving away blog candy to some special people who are hopping! After you leave your comment, please hop on over to Lucinda Gibson's blog, here. Thanks for sticking with me and I hope you'll come back to see more of my creations! Until next time, take care and be safe.
